Green Lodging Calculator ...   

The Green Lodging Calculator is designed to help users estimate the financial and environmental benefits of more sustainable practices by answering a few simple questions and clicking some buttons. 

The calculator contains over 40 waste-, water- and energy-related measures covering 18 common practices that lodging facilities can implement.

These include activities resulting in:

  •  water conservation;
  •  reductions in chemical use;
  • reductions in energy use;
  •  waste reduction;
  • reductions in greenhouse gas emissions; and
  • financial savings.

These are only some of the sustainable activities that can result in environmental and financial savings. Visit the Green Lodging Calculator to see how your facility is doing.

The Green Lodging Calculator was developed by the Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association (NEWMOA). It is the culmination of a multi-year effort aimed at improving the methodologies used for estimating and communicating the positive environmental and financial benefits of sustainable lodging practices. For more information on this effort, visit NEWMOA's Web site.
